Message from Mr. Bruce:
The Thanksgiving Program - Friday Nov. 16 at 11 a.m.
Dancing Around the Mitten Tree - Friday Dec.19 at 11 a.m.

We are looking for any musicians who would like to play for these two programs. Any instruments are welcome. Any skill level is welcome. If you've been thinking about pulling out that old clarinet or picking up that dust-collecting guitar, this is the perfect opportunity.

The songs are easy - simple melodies, three chords easy.
(Frere Jacques, He's Got the Whole World, This Land is Your Land, Simple Gifts, etc). Music is available if you'd like to practice. We play a total of about 7 minutes of music. It is lots of fun and the kids really enjoy it.

Please contact Bruce at or let him know at carpool, if you are interested or have any questions.

Real Time Messaging for School Communication
Remind allows Glenn School to safely and efficiently communicate with parents about important information and alerts of school closings. We encourage all families to set up devices to receive messages. More information will be coming home in your child's bag.

The class with the highest percentage of parents who sign up will receive a special surprise. The deadline to sign up for this contest will be November 16th.

Glenn Sale Co-Chair Needed
We are still in need of a co-chair to work with Heather Pinkerton who is heading up the Glenn Sale. This is a very important part of what makes the Glenn School successful.
